The Furry End of the World Convention was the first instance of what would become the FurryCon series of themed conventions taking place in Rochester, New York, U.S.A. The convention (held from December 20 to December 23, 2012) was centered on December 21, 2012. This date coincides with the end of a cycle of the Mayan long count calendar, which has been interpreted has a doomsday prophecy.[1]

Charitable donation[edit]

Furry End of the World announced its philanthropic activity was for the benefit of WolfGem who is still recovering from the accident that not only injured her, but that also took the lives of her mate, Elden, and their four dogs. Furry End of the World held a special collection and auction of donated items at The End of the World Convention in December. All proceeds from the collection and auction went to Wolgem to cover her medical expenses.
